Monsanto Cucumbers– Immediately Banned in Nova Scotia
A six-month study by AgriSearch, an on-campus research arm of Dalhousie University, has shown that genetically modified (GM) cucumbers grown under license to Monsanto Inc. result in serious side effects including total groin hair loss and chafing in “sensitive areas”, leading to the immediate and total ban of sales of all that company’s crop and subsequent dill pickles.
The tracking study of 643 men and women in Nova Scotia came about after reports began to surface about bald field mice and the bald feral cats that ate them being discovered by farmers on acreages growing the new crop.
“The bald wild animals raised a huge flag and we immediately obtained subpoenas for the medical records of all 600 plus adults who took part in focus groups and taste tests of the cucumbers by Monsanto in Canada,” said Dr. Nancy Walker, Director of Public Health Research at Dalhousie. “Fully 3/4 of the people who ate these cukes had their crotch area hair fall out. This is not a joking matter at all…these people now have hairless heinies.”
Hoax or Fact:
The message talks about a scientific study suggesting that genetically modified cucumbers grown under the license of Monsanto are having serious side effects in people who consume it, and that includes total groin hair loss and baldness in sensitive areas. It is not a fact.
The source of all these messages is an article on the website The Lapine, with a title 'Monsanto Cucumbers Cause Genital Baldness -- Immediately Banned in Nova Scotia'. But the fact is that it is a political satirical article that people did not notice and thought it to be true. You can read the full article from reference section below. The Lapine is a Canadian website satirizing local and national politics, and has been gaining increased press coverage from the media outlets. Couple of other satirical articles of the website include 'Putin Has Hots for Hillary -- Dumps Wife on TV', and 'Gay Panda Sent Back to China'.
There is no such scientific study from AgriSearch on Monsanto Cucumber, and is not known to cause any kind of genital baldness, so the claims are simply hoax. The article appears to be a satire over controversy of health effects of GM foods from Monsanto that you can read here.
